CompuChild® of West Central Indiana
CompuChild of West Central Indiana is dedicated to providing technology education to early learners. We provide small group, teacher guided instruction during the school day. CompuChild students quickly begin to respect technology, learn proper terminology and how computers and devices work.
Jodi Cottrell- Program Director/Teacher
I started CompuChild of West Central Indiana with a desire to make an impact on young children in our community, by acting on a need I saw in my own family.
As I prepared our son for school, I realized I did not prepare him for the computer labs and technology demands he would encounter in school. He could use my touch screen phone to play games and he also transitioned from a desktop PC to a laptop well. However, what he lacked was the terminology and understanding of how to use and care for these tools. He knew how to play on the computer and smart phone, but that was it! When I tried to instruct him how to operate or troubleshoot he didn't understand because I did not arm him with the knowledge and skills. As a CompuChild business owner, my core goal is to equip my students with the knowledge and skills needed to benefit from the technology around them. I take pride in knowing I am helping children in West Central Indiana.
I have over 15 year of experience in the preschool and daycare industry and obtained my BS from Eastern Illinois University. I have lived in West Central Indiana with my husband for 14 years and we have two children. The entire family is involved in CompuChild– It is great doing what I love with the people I love.
